Urban Dictionary had a great definition for the Jeep Wave!
#3 is my favorite:
Owning, registering, insuring, or driving a Jeep implies knowledge of and intent to abide by the following rules. Failure to obey the rules may result in your being ignored by other Jeep owners as you sit along the side of the road next to your stalled vehicle in a blizzard surrounded by Saturns, Yugos, and Hyundais.
Definition: The Jeep Wave
An honor bestowed upon those drivers with the superior intelligence, taste, class, and discomfort tolerance (exception to 97 and newer Jeep owners) to own the ultimate vehicle - the Jeep. Generally consists of either a raised hand waving or 4 fingers extended upward from the steering wheel, but may be modified to suit circumstances and locally accepted etiquette.
Examples of commonly accepted modifications:
Top off: One handed wave above windshield or outside body tub.
Top off during blizzard: Shiver and nod, hands may remain frozen to steering wheel.
Southern/rural locations: No wave, just a nod.
1. All Jeepers are responsible for upholding the tradition of the Wave. It seems that generally the Jeep wave is only practiced by Jeep owners driving the following Jeep vehicles; CJ, YJ, TJ, JK.
2. All Jeepers are required to return the Wave even if it's a Grand Cherokee or Compass.
3. Do not EVER wave to Hummers, even if you know the person.
Guy 1 is driving his Jeep and sees another Jeep so he gives the Jeep Wave. Guy 2 waves back.

|scottyp||here in EP, if they have the top fully closed, sides on, doors mounted and windows fully up with the AC blowing, the wave is not returned. Everyone else goes out out their way to say "hey man, nice jeep!"|

|RIPBiker13||Ok, so as long as it's normal. I can deal with that then. Everyone else thanks you for telling me that, lol, they be looking down the barrel of a .40 or .357 then.|
|07-07-2007 03:24 AM|
Yes it is normal and you should be used to it as a biker.
BTW, if you get into modding your ride then expect to be followed and checked out, Jeepers love to check out other Jeepers mods.
|07-07-2007 01:17 AM|
|RIPBiker13||Well you guys answered a bunch of my questions as to why ppl wave at me. I always return the wave. But if someone followed me to a gas station, I'm always packing, so watch out. LOL that's not normal... I don't think.|

Sweet!!! Arizona pinstripes. you rock!! I gotta get me some of those.

Here it is hit or miss. I wave also at the Jeeps I see. In my neighborhood I was really surprised to see how many Jeeps there were. So it kind of surprises me that wave backs are maybe 3 out of 10. The further out of town the margin increases to 6-7 out of 10. I have yet to be the receiver of a wave. I may have missed it but so far I've not caught one. As for the ones who have waved back the majority are Jeeps that have some kind of mod. Nothing big but something. Like a set of KC's or Hella up front. It may be a small light bar over the windshield. Sometimes nothing more than than 31 inch mud terrains. JK's may wave back in other places but I've not seen it here. I know they've seen me because they look at me like I've just been realesed from the nuthut. All this from a smile and a wave. Then again this is Houston.

|rnixon||The Arizona contingent, and southwest Jeepers in general, seem to have missed the most important aftermarket mod of all - Cactus-spine scratches known as Arizona Pinstripes. These should be worth at least as much as mud, PLUS, they don't wash off!|
|04-26-2007 09:08 PM|
|stabs05||Let me just say, within the first half hour I had my Jeep I got a wave. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Jeepers Rock!!!!|
|04-20-2007 03:58 PM|
|loversmoon69||I recently bought a jeep and i live in a small city....i think maybe two Jeepers have waved at me. THink I will start hangin out the window..LOL|
|04-17-2007 06:32 PM|
|jjseel||It always works best with top and doors off!!!!!!|
|04-17-2007 06:20 PM|
|Triple88a||I blink with my heads usually if its not that bright since you can see the headlights better (if you are in front of me) compared to a wave with the glare of the window.|
|04-17-2007 01:56 PM|
I try to wave at the Jeeps, and I feel bad when I miss one. But maybe that horn that I have that says, "Wave you stupid MOFO!"*** nice and loud has something to do with it.
Modified CJ's and Wranglers tend to respond more than Cherokees, Grands, and Libertys.
***This is not a real horn. Had it been an actual horn, I would probably be a squashed mofo on the side of the road somewhere.
|04-17-2007 01:34 PM|
|Chickdey||Somtimes I don't notice until it's too late and then I wave but no one sees me and then I feel bad.|

here in Dayton, OH, I would say that more than half of the Jeepers wave. Those who don't are usually mall rated chics, whom, I suspect, do not know about the wave.
I also find that I am more compelled to wave in the summer when my top is off. The top of the jeep, that is.

|virtual_verve11||very true I am definitly luck to work inside a technology center with cold air conditioning. you walk and feel the moisture in the air stick to ones skin.|

yeah its pretty scary but I have also visited other cities like Minneapolis Minnesota and Austin Texas I haven't really been there that long but enough to to miss home, I don't think I'll leave I mean I am a huge Bears and White Sox Fan and I do attend the games one must just be careful about the crazy kids out there. I guess I'll leave if I get a job offer somewhere else and the pay is better.
|04-05-2007 07:07 PM|
|Triple88a||virtual_verve11 I also am from chicago. I hate being here and the first good chance i get i'm outa here. I also have problems with gangsters.. I totally hate people that think its cool to be black or mexican or polish or whatever the race may be... I dont want to sound racis to any one but it gets anoying when you have 14 year old kids walkin around the streets with guns because they think they are cool and they are "gangsters".. Many say the Mafia was so bad but at least they finished school and didnt drop out so at least you know the people holding the trigers are smart.|
